The original underdog system was awesome, unfortunately, people made a lot of tweaks to it in the past few years which resulted in a lot more plays, and a lot more losses. I'm pretty sure everyone stopped doing it because it was losing money they way it was being done. I had the same problem as you are talking about when I did all the research myself. Good luck if you decide to give it a try, I hope you use the original criteria!
If you're interested, I can give you all the qualifiers of the original one (I think it was bDnews who posted it). He looked at winning percentages for last 10 games, historical win percentages of the teams head to head, etc. There were about 10 criteria in total. Usually only 1 or 2 series would qualify, but won at a very high rate. Send me a PM with your e-mail if you're interested and I'll mail you the excel spreadsheet I used. It's at my office so I won't be able to send until tomorrow.
I have no problem doing the research for these, as stated above, I usually have difficulty figuring if teams will be dogs all games of a series, but I can do the rest. There are no plays until teams have played 10 games, so we'll start then
v ery interesting,shame he got chased away by the haters and we diddnt get to see it play out for the season.did you play it only once?or have you used it for multiple seasons?Either way im in ,seems like with ONLY the original filters worth a shot.thanx in advance will follow and cheer
I played it for a few seasons and then didn't have time to do the work after that. It was profitable when I used it. I think if we stick to the original filters, which don't result in tons of plays, it can work again. I'll start posting plays starting with the 4th series of the season.
